Yes, I am pointing at YOU!
Do you know that you have the ability to impact someone's life every day? Do you know that you do impact someone's life each day? Yes, you do, most of the time without even realizing it.
Do you understand that you already do make a difference in someone's life?
It is not always the big things we do that we know for sure helps someone. It can be things we do as we go about our day that can have the most influence on someone else.
A simple "Thank You" may be all someone needs to make their day much better. A sincere smile. Opening the door for someone. Giving someone an unexpected gift. An encouraging word.
All of us are important to each other not just ourself. When we realize this our lives will be so much happier and have much more meaning. We will feel good about ourself.
I received an email today from Richard Rossbauer where he was speaking about this very thing and I started thinking about doing this post. In the email he provided a link to a very thought provoking page. It is a PDF by Ken McArthur named 'The Impact Manifesto'. The subtitle is You Make A Difference Whether You Want To Or Not.
"You matter because, by existing, you impact
the world every day. So consider the powerful force
of the choices you make"
"People feel your influence countless times, in amazing
ways you never notice. Just as the butterfly’s wings can
change the weather, your tiny movements may create storms
that shake the entire earth"
If you don't do anything else this day to be productive please take the time to read The Impact Manifesto...
You see to me you do matter...
